You are totally right for textures,
and I loved them on certain UI, just see the Native Damage Kontakt Instrument interface, it is gorgious :P

But do wee need such textures for our Daw ?
If you take a close look at every new theme on Reaper stash, few of them have this kind of textures. Actually, they often use
  • flat
  • shades
  • gradient
Things for which vector is meant to be

REAPER has always wanted to have a lightweight customizable and compatible with all kind of computer (low performance or high performance).
We could maybe have some places for Bitmap, and other for vectors... ?

Here is a Pro & Cons recap for Vector based GUI. I didn't find a lot of other resources about this subject.
